what is better high resolution or higher refresh rates?

Neither, both reach a diminishing return point, I would rather have something like 1440p@120Hz to enjoy both worlds instead of 1080p@144Hz+ or 4k@60Hz.

I would consider the Acer Predator X34P, Z35 or similars, ultrawide is pretty great.

 

I would look for:

IPS panel

G-Sync

1440p ultrawide

100Hz+

 

And maybe some other features, but these are the main ones.

I think you should go higher resolution, 3440x1440p. This is the same resolution as my monitor, which I run at 60Hz with a GTX 970, so the 2080 Ti will be overkill for it, I think.

oh oof....i found a monitor that runs 7680x4320 @Metallus97

If you have infinite money get the 4k 144hz gsync monitor (2000+$)

If you dont,

get either 3440x1440p x34 120hz gsync ips (900$)

or 2560x1440p 144hz gsync display (600-900$).

Or 3440x1440p 100hz samsung (600$)

ok...i'll check out those

I am getitng a 2080 Ti and i'm wondering what monitor would be best for it.
i wanted 4k at first but then i thought maybe it would be better to get a monitor with better refresh rates.
what do you guys think is better?

 

Thats a rather subjective question.

 

Me personaly would chosoe resolution over max frequency.

I put more importance on image fidelity, over max displayable FPS.

 

Case in point, i still use a 42" Plasma TV as my display becouse i find the picture far superior to most LCD's at this point. I could upgrade to a 4k display, but i would have to spend more than i would like on a LCD good enough to ofset the drawbacks vs Plasma, and i cant swallow that, I wont pay out the nose for a display tech with such flaws. Thats why im waiting on a suitable OLED at the right size, or MicroLED.

 

If i were u however, i would grab a 5k/2k or 4k monitor over a 144hz 1080p one. Alternativly grab a 120hz 1440p display.

Dafuq lmao, it has 4x more pixels than a 4k panel. Even a 2080 Ti SLI would struggle to keep 60fps.

nah dude, IPS looks much more rich compared to a classical TN panel. Also vexing angels are worlds better

On my X34P, compared to my second ultrawide (TN panel), you can tell that colors are slightly less vibrant, that might just be my panel, so idk


uh hi

Just throwing it out there I'm of the same opinion as @Vasllo that 144hz 1440p is the way to go. People have been downplaying how good 144hz is to 60hz but I find the difference to be significant. I immediately notice if my settings have been reset to 60 hz it seems very jarring, which happened in the game battalion 1944 a few times.

It obviously depends on what kind of games you like playing to a certain extent as if you are playing Cities Skylines/Civilization it's probably not going to matter as much. But for most games, particularly First person shooters 144hz makes a big difference.
